A couple of benches for the village Deli made from a piece of locally sourced Oak

No proper joinery involved, just a Zipbolt and Domino to hold the legs on 😳

Legs at the front and bracketed to the wall at the back to hopefully stop them walking as they are near the road. You can't tell from the photos but the legs splay forwards and to the side.

Customer thinks they look great and it's the easiest job I've had in ages, so everyone is happy :)

Finished with acrylic external varnish, will be interesting to see how long that lasts!

Hi all.
About a month ago bought a Tyme cub lathe, so have been building up a very small collection of chisels and gouges. Two weeks ago found a Rexon bandsaw on marketplace cheap. So Saturday turned a white oak swivel top salt pot from a seasoned log (firewood). Two coats of shellac and quite happy with the result. Only the 3rd thing turned so far but now I’ve made a sharpening jig out of ply for gouges will be doing more.

Latest complete project - guitar pedal board for my brother’s 30th birthday.

Walnut frame - birch ply top with velcro covering - branded leather logo which is framed with snake wood - stainless steel jack socket surround I turned on the metal lathe, which is surrounded with a little bit of lignum vitae - and not my pedals 😁

some more...you know....

sorry they're not woodworking.

52100 chisels instead of recycled files, but still done freehand and shaped by hand and finished by hand.

The chisels on the right have large bolsters because they're going to a professional planemaker in the US who wants to put octagonal beech handles on them. The ones on the left are for me, and and will just have turned handles with brass ferrules.

playing with the lathe, replacement croquet stick, hardwood, turned, painted, waxed, varnished...
Very nice, Mr K.
Don't let the Mrs see that you've stuck the stick into the sofa though!

Thinking about the colouring the balls, I would think any good bright paint would do, then good polyurethane varnish?
Might chip a bit, though that gives them patina and character

Finished my router table, not as fancy as many on here but it will meet my needs I believe. It is to replace a trend crt? at least 10yrs old. Made next to my MFT and I wanted it to be able to be an extension of that if needed so you can take the fence and mitre out by just removing the cut outs I put in that are held in place with rare earth magnets and washers. Hopefully you get the gist from the photos.....
